So we are taking a road trip across the Midwest this summer with stops in Texas, Tennessee, Michigan, Illinois, and Missouri. I'm thinking that I'm going to need to print out your lists from those states so we can make sure to hit at least one of the bookstores at each stop and read a book about the state. It will be such a great way to really get immersed in the place.

Nikki Steele - That's awesome! I hope you find some great bookshops from these lists along the way. If you find yourself in Indianapolis you'll have to let me know!
